Love the Shadow Recovery on the K3
Lens: 12-24 Camera: k3 Photo Location: Grayson Highlands State Park ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/25s Aperture: F9

I am still fairly new to the k3 so I am still using the 2 exposure brackets to make sure I can get all the DR covered. But am finding as I get more familiar with where the k3 clips the highlights I am needing the second exposure less and less. my personal jury is still out on the 12-24 but so far I have gotten good results.

The flare took the picture from ordinary to extraordinary. A fine shot indeed.

Incredible. The dynamic range is fantastic and I agree about the beauty of the lens flare.
